TULSA, Okla., May 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SemGroup® Corporation (NYSE:SEMG) is pleased to announce that it has received the Outstanding Corporation Award from the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce’s Partner in Education Program.
Throughout 2015 and into 2016, SemGroup has partnered with Union Public School, Rosa Parks Elementary. This is the first time a Union Public School has been selected to participate in the Chamber’s Partner in Education Program. SemGroup employees have spent countless hours volunteering at Rosa Parks in many roles including STEM tutors, reading buddies and test monitors. SemGroup has also given various monetary donations to the school to provide computer equipment, backpacks and more.
“SemGroup is honored by this award but even more touched to be nominated by the fantastic teaching team at Rosa Parks,” said Carlin Conner, SemGroup chief executive officer. “We are committed to improving the lives of our youth through education and believe the best way to fulfill that mission is by getting out of our office and into the classroom. These children are Tulsa’s future and thanks to volunteers and programs like Partners in Education, they’ll have the skills and support needed to be successful.”
“Union Public Schools could not be making the great strides it is toward achieving its mission of graduating all students ready for college and/or careers without valuable Community Schools partners like the SemGroup,” said Union Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler. “The time, talent, and resources SemGroup commits to Rosa Parks Elementary students and their families serves as the perfect example of Union’s slogan, ‘Together, We Make a Difference.’ We so appreciate SemGroup, and we are thrilled they have received this well-deserved recognition!”
